Jim Clash: Business and Adventure Journalist, Author

May 15th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|

James M. (Jim) Clash is the closest thing to a modern-day Superman as you will ever meet.  By day, he is a mild-mannered journalist who began his career as a business writer for Forbes magazine, reporting on cerebral topics like hedge funds and 401(k)s.  But, like Clark Kent, Clash has an alter ego as surprising – and fearless – as the Man of Steel himself. As an adventure journalist, author, Explorers Club fellow and director, Clash has engaged in some of the world’s most daring exploits and lived to write about them.  A partial list of his quests includes being shot [...]

“Since we at The Drive are suckers for any chance to see fast cars hauling ass, we were more than happy to book a trip out to Idaho for a chance to see the assembly of Porsches, Ferraris, Corvettes, and even more exotic sheetmetal (hello, Singer Vehicle Design) try and see how high a speed each of them could achieve when given legal carte blanche and a tank full of racing fuel.”

“Imagine you are stopped by a policeman in your sports car on a smallish, two-lane back road just outside of Sun Valley, Idaho. Rather than scold you, though, the officer smiles and gives a ‘thumbs up.’ You respond by lighting up the tires and screaming up a hill into a wide left-hander at 140mph, cresting at 170, then plummeting back down the hill through a speed trap at over 200 mph.”
